Broccoli Seed, Calabrese
Calabrese Broccoli Seed - Mild Flavor, Nutritional Powerhouse
Broccoli is a very easy-to-grow nutrient packed microgreen! When grown as a microgreen (7-10 days from plant to harvest), broccoli is a vitamin packed super food! High in Vitamin C, and loaded with the cancer fighting compound sulforaphane, this plant packs a punch. A little goes a long ways, just a handful of micro broccoli is nutritionally equivalent to almost a pound of full grown broccoli crowns. Less fiber means the little plants are more easily digested, the nutrients are absorbed easier, and no bloating. These seeds are also perfect for sprouting, and can be grown in the garden to maturity.
Broccoli micros are a perfect addition to any salad or sandwich, or add to your favorite smoothie for a shot of nutrition. It's very potent, so only a small handful is needed, and its mild broccoli flavor won't overpower. It also hides well in smoothies for kids & picky eaters!
